Sir , you can now edit the answer as I have edited my first sentence . And manager is a male, still you want me to use THEIR and not his ?

In the second sentence, can I assume that there is nothing to do with "nearest noun" thing . There is a rare belief that pronoun is written according to as what is the nearest noun. So assuming manager is male. Can I fill in the blank with HIS .

True. I picked it from Wren and Martin. And I guess you have got the sense of what is my main concern. Still you haven't addressed the concern.

Ok. I just took an example. What if the sentence is different ,connected by OR with opposite genders on both sides !

comment As/so sth as: subjective or objective pronoun?
@John According to the examples given under the "syntax link" the sentence can be broken as : We scored goals .They scored goals. So it turns out the final sentence should be : We scored as many goals as they(scored). Am I right ?

comment “Except for” vs “Except In”
@Jim The motive is to project for how long the two persons haven't met ,Now , read my sentence again to see if the sentence satisfies the mentioned condition . How one says it ? that just depends . Meaning is conveyed anyways .
